    yeah they sell genuine sticks.

    The only places that sell fakes are eBay and amazon marketplace.

    what are the downsides of a "fake" mem stick? just less storage space than advertised?

    sometimes they are slower. Other times, the bugs are so few and far between that you can't tell.

    Some of the stuff you transfer onto the memstick end up showing as corrupted or not showing at all.

    I got one, it came in, I liked it.


    I have a 15 dollar coupon for my next purchase, I also signed up with their promo and just canceled right away :) [Actually, took them three 32 hour times to send me the emails. Louts, it was automatic anyway. "Within 32 hours...")
    Anyway, though, I've bought a few times. My stick has a fast read, most important, at 15.23mbs, and a slowish but I still think fast right at 5.32 (Internal). That's a little faster then my older sandisk i bought from newegg. It's a deep blue, for note. [I've also bought from them 2 sd readers w/2gb for 10 dollars after rebate. CONTACT if you're interested in a SD reader, Kingston, perfect condition no packaging for $4 :-)]
